Nothing is perfect , least of all these "tourist" superzooms with their compromised optics and even more compromised sensors , the lens range is getting bigger and bigger but in general most of these cams still have annoying lever zooms and awful ergonomics - Fuji have long been ones for manual zooms on consumer superzooms, the excellent S9500 started it and the HS series of today still have this pivotal feature, the HS30`s action is improved over the lumpy action of the HS10 and 20 but the ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR

I am an Amateur in this world of Phothography and I have practiced a ...View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
